New Music for New Instruments

NMNI

I’m really excited to share a very special project I’ve been working on for the past couple of months. New Music for New Instruments is a program of works created through the collaboration of instrument builders Andy Cavatorta, Merche Blasco, and Nick Yulman and composers Angélica Negrón, Albert Behar, Fjóla Evans and Molly Herron. This program of world premieres will be presented on Sunday, November 16th at 7:30 pm at Brooklyn’s Littlefield.

For this program I’ve been creating a piece using text from the Little Prince featuring a boy soprano (the super talented Ari!) singing amongst a sea of robotic modules that can produce sound out of any object, created by the amazing Nick Yulman.

This will be an incredible show so if you’re in NYC it’s definitely one not to miss! If you would like support this project we’re also running a Kickstarter campaign.

Rapid Ear Movement (REM)

Symphony-Space_Header

 

Now in its fifth year, The Music of Now Marathon, “a massive gathering of adventurous musicmakers”(Time Out New York) continues to be a destination for the newest sounds on the musical landscape. This year, join us for a sonic dream journey with an electrifying range of soloists and ensembles. Like the vivid dreams of REM sleep, Rapid Ear Movement explores varied musical scenarios, lucid–and irrational– interpretations, and unexpected and inexplicable events.

I’ll be performing at this year’s Music of Now Marathon where I’ll premiere a new song cycle “La Búsqueda (The Search)”. This new work is comprised of three new electro-acoustic songs that explore the mysterious disappearance of a girl in an unknown town. The amazing percussionist Shayna Dunkelman and my good friend multi-instrumentalist and folk musician Enrique Bayoán will join me on stage. This year’s line-up is truly unbelievable so come out on Saturday!
